Demetri Martin’s new TV show & a free NYC comedy show
"[Demetri] Martin, along with one of his writers, Michael Koman, whom he'd met while working on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and an editor, Bryan Shelton, was cutting together an episode of his forthcoming show, Important Things With Demetri Martin. They needed to get the episode down to 22 minutes for its premiere on Comedy Central on February 11. They'd been at this process, on various episodes, for weeks. (When Flight 1549 went down in the Hudson River, Martin didn't know about it until he saw the plane being towed along in the river outside the building's window.) As a result, the editing suite had the slightly stale air of a missile-firing silo in which the men, bleary-eyed, have been locked together for too long, hands on the firing keys, ready to launch."
Demetri Martin is kicking ass lately. The very-soon to be TV star quickly sold out his upcoming NYC shows at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. That of course hasn't stopped him from taking part in the culture that is NYC comedy which by that I mean making non-stop free appearances at venues like the soon-to-be-closed Sound Fix, UCB, and Pianos. Catch him tonight, for free, at Pianos - before the Ferraby Lionheart show. Details below...
